Bob Dyer

Long time resident of Westwood, Bob Dyer, has passed away. Bob and his wife, Bernice, contributed many volunteer hours. These hours resulted in Westwood’s new streets and many issues of the Babbler. Westwood is a better neighorhood due to their efforts. Our condolences to the Dyer family.

Bellfort Park Apartments

A company has contacted us for an endorsement of their project to demolish the Bellfort Park Apartments and rebuild new ones. They would still be affordable housing but it would be gated, new construction with strict requirements for the renters. The civic Club board can see nothing but positive result for the neighborhood. That being said, we are in the process of endorsing this project. I will keep everyone informed.

Roofer’s Signs

Let’s press the roofing contractors to get their signs out of your yard. If your roof is done, get them to pick up their signs or remove them your self. They have had plenty of free advertising time. It is time to move on.

Black Trash Bags

City of Houston Solid Waste will not pick up your yard waste that is contained in large black plastic bags. The rules say that tree and yard waste must be in city approved recyclable plastic bags. I know these bags are not very good as far as holding anything but those are the rules. If you have or your neighbors have yard waste at the curb in black plastic bags, please move them and get the material in the proper bags.
